Fat versus Thin Threading Approach on GPUs: Application to Stochastic Simulation of Chemical Reactions
IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems
By Guido Klingbeil,Radek Erban,Mike Giles,Philip K. Maini
Issue Date:February 2012
We explore two different threading approaches on a graphics processing unit (GPU) exploiting two different characteristics of the current GPU architecture. The fat thread approach tries to minimize data access time by relying on shared memory and registers...
